An exceedingly rare case of extragonadal immature teratoma, which occurred primarily in the uterus, is described. The tumor developed into the pelvic cavity from the uterine fundus and consisted of ectodermal, mesodermal and endodermal derivatives. There were also significant amounts of immature elements; immature neuroepithelium with brisk mitotic activity, immature mesenchymal tissue, immature cartilage, immature striated muscle and immature hepatic tissue. Histologically, it was classified as a grade 3 immature teratoma. Treatment consisted of total simple hysterectomy followed by 2 courses of combination chemotherapy with vincristine, actinomycin D and cyclophosphamide (VAC). The patient was well and without evidence of recurrence at 5 years post-operatively.
